Housing Element Re-Zones

HE Rezone 2

The proposed project is a city led effort that includes a General Plan Amendment and Re-Zone of two existing parcels from their existing general plan designations to High Density Residential (HDR) and zoned (DR-20) to implement the City’s newly adopted Housing Element. The proposed sites are identified in the Housing Element as sites Site B and D:

  • Site B (APN 139-031-020) is a .64-acre parcel zoned low-density single family residential (20-R-1)
  • Site D (APN 137-260-021) is a 3.71-acre parcel zoned recreational (REC). 

The project does not include a development proposal or has a developer at this time. The proposed re-zone and General Plan Amendment would allow a future proposal of up to a maximum of 20 residential units per acre. Future development proposals would be subject to City review, including environmental review. City staff has completed an initial study and is currently circulating an Mitigated Negative Declaration for public review. The proposed re-zones will need to be approved by the City Council.
